JUDGMENT

 

F. MacGregor (PCA)

 

 

  1. I have read the Judgment of my learned brother, Justice Domah, and agree with it, save that I am also of the opinion that in this case the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the parties which came after the Charter, implicitly cured, confirmed and ratified the precedence of transactions before it, if at all there were wanting and defective in any way.
  2.  
  3. It is clearly a document of legal obligation between two proper legal personalities which in effect specifically provides that any dispute should be settled by all means through arbitration before going to court.
